The Evil Within 2 release date drops in time for Halloween

The Evil Within 2 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in the U.S. and Europe on October 13, 2017. 

Developed by Tango Gameworks, the sequel continues the story of Detective Sebastian Castellanos, who is dismissed from duties after his superiors fail to buy his story after surviving the horrific events of the first game.

After failing to turn up any evidence, Castellanos becomes hooked on booze for the next few years, until Juli Kidman, his former partner, turns ups with news that his daughter is actually still alive and has been captured by the nefarious organisation, Mobius. 

The Evil Within 2 sees a number of gameplay improvements over its predecessor, including large environments to explore filled with side activities and precious resources. 

Gamers have three difficulty choices to pick from – Casual, Survival, and Nightmare – and can also take advantage of a crafting system allowing them to cobble together essential supplies, such as ammo.

Seb has five key attributes that can customised extensively, while weapons can also be upgraded to increase their potency in combat.
